The best way to Make a Great Picture - Component 4
Use Sensational Lighting to your Advantage
It is about the eye for beauty I agree, but while one is into landscape photography, he/she has to keep in mind particular parameters to be able to get the very best of the nature. These parameters are extremely crucial and play an essential role in the resulting picture. Besides colours and backgrounds, each of which I 've already discussed, lights also play an essential part in photography. And one must always keep in mind that landscape photography looks best when one uses the finest of colors and with the best of light.
I've frequently seen that photographs that win competitions in many cases are the ones that make fascinating utilization of light. Keep an eye out for that silver lining- the beams of light shining through clouds, dazzling light through the trees or windows, complex long shadows and the impact of backlighting and side. Certain angles of light add an amazing effect to even an ordinary landscape; keep an eye for all those sources. The art of a landscape photographer would be to tap on these angles and use it to his advantage. Be mindful to snatch away every good light in every great angle possible. Believe it or not believe it, even a plain tree shot in a brilliant light and angle can seem divine. Use light to define your pictures.
